Regional Food Chains You Desperately Wish Would Go National
Everyone deserves some Biscuit Love.
There are plenty of regional food chains that we wish would head down South. Those chains are certainly far too numerous to list here, but we’ve compiled a few of the favorites we’re constantly craving from afar, from Culver’s Concretes to Shake Shack burgers. There are also more than a few Southern chains that we wish would spread out across the South (We’re looking at you, Torchy’s Tacos.) We love our Southern food chains, and we wish they’d all go national so that everyone else can experience them too. In this list, we’ve included both Southern spots and restaurants headquartered elsewhere that we wish would open in the South. At these spots, you'll find tacos and gyros and chili and biscuits, just to name a few dishes. These chains run the culinary gamut, and we can't wait for our next visit. Part of the fun of travel is trying new foods, but when you get a taste of these regional chains, you might just dream about them for weeks afterward. They’re that good. Add these spots to your must-try list so that if you travel to these locations, you can eat like a local and then constantly crave their fare like the rest of us.
